I live on my laptop. Much of my work is on my laptop. And tonight my laptop died, and I am busy trying to deal with it.

It won't even power on, even briefly, so I think it's done for. I got the bottom panel off, removed the hard drive, and pried it out of its cheap sled so that I could insert into an enclosure. Fortunately the drive seems to be fine and I am copying my files onto our kid's laptop. I do have a backup from a week ago but this way I don't lose a week's worth of work.

Tomorrow I'm going to need to go shopping for a new laptop. I have hard deadlines at work next week so this is really awful timing.

So... I have not gone looking for comfort food to stuff myself with. Am sorely tempted, though!

    I have gone through that with two different laptops. One was mine and one was my husband's. Both times it was a frustrating experience, so I now back up my computer as often as possible. Good luck with yours. emoticon emoticon

    Oh nooooooo! There's nothing more frustrating than trouble with machines! But at least you knew what to do and you could save your files. If the same thing happened to me, I would have to call 911 (in the form of Toshi or Kana). What bad timing for you with all your deadlines. Hope this is soon resolved!

    I'm sorry! That's terrible! I'm glad you were able to save the work though. I'm sure it would have been much worse if it was completely gone. But yeah, that's a pain. Computers are not cheap. Good luck shopping tomorrow. I hope you find a great deal! Awesome job not going for that comfort food!! Resist that temptation! emoticon
